iWayAfrica unveils Kampala fibre service

3 Sep 2014

The Ugandan unit of regional internet service provider iWayAfrica has launched a new fibre-optic access service for small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) customers. The firm has connected with the Google-backed Project Link metro fibre ring in Kampala to provide local businesses with an improved and cheaper internet service. Ken Mwai, the managing director at iWayAfrica Uganda, was quoted by CIO East Africa as saying: ‘Google manages the last mile link and ensures redundancy on its network, while iWay provides the services directly to the end customer. It is a win-win for all involved, especially the customers.’ iWayAfrica is owned by Gondwana International Networks (GIN) and has a presence in 44 countries across the continent.
